Some good laughs, 9 July 2010
Author: LawWithAppeal from United States

I wasn't sure what to expect from this movie as Pauly hasn't really had much come out in a while, however the cover caught my eye off the bat as ridiculous. As many others I thought it might just be awful, however with an open mind and taking Shore's humor into consideration I watched it. I'm sorry but it's a MOCKumentary and it's a good one. I think some of the jokes could be found offensive if this were a documentary and Shore genuinely believed the stereotypes to be true, however it isn't. I think this is Shore's funniest stuff in a long time. In addition, I enjoyed seeing Africa, it looked beautiful. So all in all it is not for all, if you don't like Shore to begin with you will not like this movie, but if you are open to the comedy of it's worth the time to watch.
